"From the gut (and the heart)"
Editorials by Paul Olivier
Separation of Powers Principle.
A Constitutional Principle every American should understand is challenged by the General Accounting Office. That this is a Democrats versus Republican is obvious and derives from the fear of the Democrats for the popularity of President Bush and his team in all polls with the upcoming elections for critical seats in Congress. 
The alleged connection of the former Oil execs Bush and Cheney to the Houston Texas based company Enron, gives the Democrats an opening to cater to the conspiracy theory crowd, that some hanky-panky has gone on.
The position of the President however on principle may be strong, may count on the loss of  with less acuity blessed voters.
"You cant always get what you want"; this also applies to the GAO; the Democrats could gain a little. How much is not clear. It depends on the outcome in the courts.
